Yanceyville, N. C., Feb. 14 – Rev. J. T. Stanford filled his regular appointments at Locust Hill and prospect churches last Sunday. Notwithstanding the bad condition of the roads, there were satisfactory congregations at each place.

Interest in the consolidation of schools in the county continues to grow. Two townships, Prospect Hill and Leasburg, are each considering the erection of a township high school. Much activity is being manifested in both these projects, and no doubt each school will be in operation next year.

Rev. E. B. Thompson preached his farewell sermon at the Presbyterian church here last Sunday night. He will leave early in March for his new pastorate in Louisiana. Mr. and Mrs. Thompson have made for themselves a warm place in the hearts of the people here, and the best wishes of the entire community go with them to their new home and field of labor.

Mr. and Mrs. R. A. Pope are confined to their home with flu this week.

Among the social events of last week was a party given Monday night by Mrs. E. F. Upchurch and another Friday night by Miss Willie Johnston.

John H. Davis, an esteemed citizen of the Purley community, died early last Saturday morning. The funeral was conducted from Providence Baptist Church Sunday afternoon by the pastor, Rev. R. W. Prevost. Mr. Davis had been a member of that church for nearly forty years.

Mrs. J. H. Herr continues ill from a recent attach of influenza. Dr. and Mrs. W. O Spencer, of Winston-Salem, visited Mrs. Kerr Sunday.

P. F. Sutton is spending part of the week in Greensboro on business.
